A lesson a day....

We are back from an awesome week that just flew by. To recap the week I will give a daily review of our fun with a lesson that I learned from that day. Make sense?

Bram loved Zoo Camp, it was great and we are for sure going to be doing it every year. If you live in the DFW area, I highly recommend putting your little one in this program. Also, Bram swam every day for hours at Gran-T and Mikey's. He is awesome now! By Saturday, he was swimming and touching the bottom of the deep end. And THAT IS A BIG DEAL!

So let's start with today's lesson.

Lesson #1:

My circle of friends is ever expanding.

I thought at the age of 34 I would of found all of my really good friends. This has been proven wrong. I have been so blessed through blog land and consider many of you friends. But I have also made some real life best friends through this blog. As most of you know my love affair with Casey. And then Jen. And through Casey I met Carrie. This week I got to meet Carrie and her little guy Hagen, who is just a few months older than Tess.

I have to say, I love her! We both went to Tech at the same time and know a lot of the same people. And we have a lot in common.

Carrie holding the two little ones. Tess wanted her to hold her. Then when Hagen saw that he wanted a ride. So a cute picture came about!

We walked around University Plaza and left a path of destruction. I am expecting a phone call or a bill in the mail this week.

And that is all I am going to say about that.

Hagen watching the penguins. This one particular penguin was seriously playing with Hagen. It was precious.

The aquarium was the only place that Tess didn't freak the shit out. She was not a fan of the animals. Just the fish.
Which was OK by me, because it was sooooo hot that stopping at the stinky bear exhibit wasn't appealing.

Here she is panicking at the lion exhibit. Instead of consoling her, I grabbed my camera. Nice mommy.

See Hagen excitedly looking at the giraffes? Tess is looking a little unsure about the situation. In fact, after this picture was snapped, I had to hold her.
Those giraffes can be very scary.

So all in all, this day was terrific. And a lesson learned. My circle of friends is actually not complete.

Well, maybe now it is.

Court, Casey said you were going to be here this weekend? Please bring the babies and come to the birthday party to meet the whole damn family; I would love to meet you in person finally!

FTW zoo is the best. Freaking out child or not. Give her time, it will grow on her. Sounds like day one was fun. I sure missed reading your blog. Glad you are back in business.
